Gill Continues Partnership with the ACA and Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series for 2019

Gill continues their support of the Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series for the 4th straight year, with an opportunity for college anglers like you to get the highest quality gear at special student pricing.  Gill is able to offer this Scholastic Fishing Program direct to our country’s leading college and university fishing teams.

With a 43-year history designing, testing and improving fabrics for ultimate performance, Gill prides itself in providing technical products that will withstand the extreme weather challenges anglers face on the water.  Gill focuses on two primary elements for their marine clothing, fabric technology and garment design.  Using those guiding principles, the Gill design team is constantly searching for new fabric technology and seeking input from our pro angler team to improve each product.

“We are proud to partner with Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series for a fourth year and continue to support the ever-growing sport of collegiate bass fishing. As part of this initiative, we are also pleased to offer gear crafted for their sport at a price that makes it accessible to college students. College anglers are a huge part of the overall sport of bass fishing, and Gill is excited for another year with them at the Nationals,” said Tim Golden, National Sales Manager Gill Fishing.

“We are extremely excited to have Gill onboard for the 2019 season,” said President of CarecoTV and Association of Collegiate Anglers Director. “As we’ve seen in past tournaments, the weather is just as unpredictable as the fishing sometimes and having Gill involved will give these collegiate anglers some assurance on the water with the gear they are wearing.”

Qualified Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing Series anglers can receive up to a 40% discount on all Gill purchases. In addition to the 40% team discount on all offered products, Gill can also assist with branding your team’s apparel (printing and embroidery). As a scholastic partner you will also receive our monthly newsletter with tips from the pros and featured items, as well as special promotions and sales. To join Gill’s Mailing List, click here!

About Gill

Gill was an idea first born on British waters in 1975 by founder Nick Gill, a keen sailor who wanted to create a range of sailing product without compromise; the best fabrics, the best features, the best quality.

Now trusted for over 40 years, Gill has grown into an established technical apparel brand meeting consumer needs both on and off the water and continues to combine innovative design with the latest fabric technology to increase the performance of its range.

Distributed around the world to 37 countries and more recently through a global Ecommerce platform Gill remains the number one marine glove brand and its comprehensive product range driven by the well-known FG21 Tournament Suit and OS3 Coastal Suit Ranges.
